PLA attempts to disrupt Indian patrol party in DBO, massive troop building by PLA across LoAC
India matches bullet for bullet and soldier for soldier

Leh(Ladakh), June 25, (Scoop News)-After agreeing to disengage from the areas of contention along the Line of Actual Control (LoAC), Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) has amassed troops at several places across the de facto border, sources said.

“They will not abide by the agreements or stand by the commitments they have made during the top military leader talks at Moldo on Monday,” said Jigmit Namgyal, a strategic analyst.

He said the sole objective of PLA is to wear out the Indian army in a hostile environment. By resurfacing at Daulat Beigh Oldie (DBO), Depsang, Demchok Hot Spring, Pongong Tso and Galwan Valley, “PLA is playing a mind game,” Jigmit pointed out.

“After reaching a consensus on June 22, why should they (PLA) prevent our soldiers from carrying out their patrol duty in DBO, Despang and Demchok etc now?” he asked.

Referring to reports trickling in from across the LoAC, Jigmit said PLA has amassed large number of troops, tanks, multi barrel rocket launchers, armoured vehicles, fighter jets and other assortment of military equipment.

He said PLA also had deputed Tibetan officials to convince the local population to be prepared for an alteration in the borders. “The Tibetans are cut off from the rest of world as international communication links have been snapped. The people were rendered incommunicado,” Jigmit added.

To counter any Chinese misadventure, the Indian army has bolstered its defences and moved thousands of its additional troops to forward locations along the LoAC. On June 21, the government gave armed forces full freedom to give a befitting response to Chinese intrusion along the de facto border.

Several versions of tanks, armoured vehicles, multi barrel rocket launchers, surface to air missiles and other assortment of lethal weapons have been moved to forward posts, sources said.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) too has deployed a significant number of its frontline fighter jets including Mirage 2000, Jaguar, Sukhoi 30 MKI and Chinooks besides Apache attack helicopters at several key air bases including Leh, Awantipora, Pathankote and Adampur.

Meanwhile, the Chief of Army Staff (CoAS), General MM Naravane, awarded Commendation Cards to five soldiers who valiantly fought against the Chinese army personnel during a violent clash at Galwan Valley and Pongong Tso during recent weeks.

These five soldiers had displayed exemplary courage and valour in dealing with Chinese troops in two separate clashes in Pongong Tso and Galwan Valley in eastern Ladakh....
